We tend to view silence as the opposite of speech, but silence too can speak volumes. There is considerable interest in free speech, what about the ability to remain silent? Does silence have a particular value, and how can we achieve it in our busy, noisy world? Examining perspectives from across philosophy, religion, and political thought, we challenge our assumptions about silence, questioning its relation to thinking, and asking whether it might serve as a form of political resistance.
